Chromatic House, Torres Vedras, Portugal
Chromatic House is a wonderland of color, detail, whimsy, and minimalist design in a refurbished 19th townhouse in Torres Vedras, 50 km north of Lisbon. Designed by architect Pedro Gandanho, the home uses a mix of bright and pastel colors to define the space and highlight accents on period plaster moldings, staircases, and built-in cabinetry for a striking contrast between old and new.
Each room in the two-story home has its own “environment” created out of color and division of space. A sense of playfulness is evident in the functional decor, such as a sculptural red and white pill that conceals a children’s bathroom, an octagonal closet in muted pea green, and a luggage elevator painted bright yellow.
Despite the thoroughly modern interiors, Chromatic House is located in the old part of Torres Vedras and offers great views of the city and castle from the rooftop terrace. With 1 suite and 3 bedrooms, Chromatic House is a true treat for lovers of design and color.
